I think that my most important technique is to assist individuals in recognizing that depression is a condition and is not a form of laziness; many individuals have expressed a sense of relief as others have encouraged them to "just get over it". I utilize a combination of support and encouragement, including discussions of successes and challenges. I strongly discourage the use of the word "should" and any judgmental language. In addition, I believe that there is no specific time table for recovery, and that each individual is unique in their recovery.

As a mental health professional of considerable experience I've worked with individuals and couples with issues of demoralization, depressed mood and various forms of acute and long-standing depression. Depression isn't only an individual matter. as it sucks the life out of a couple and a family. In our work together clients often find hope by actively discussing their life issues, often their shame and anger at themselves and others for the predicaments they are a part of. Depression can be harmful medically and medical issues can cause depression. It can kill. I work well with the medical community, referring when necessary,

Depressive symptoms can stem from a variety of sources in an individual’s life usually reflecting a sense of loss. While medications can be helpful, it’s the behavioral symptoms associated with depression that can leave a lingering impact even after the depressive symptoms have stated to improve. Being pulled into depressive experiences over and over reflects both habits that can be difficult to break and/or subconscious issues that have yet to be addressed. Through processes such as hypnotherapy that address the whole person, we are able to capture a wider range of challenges and help the individual to regain the ground lost to he depressive illness.

People may medicate their depression with TV, alcohol, food, isolation, or excessive sleep. One definition of depression is "anger turned inward." Talking with a psychologist is one of the best methods to understand your down moods, unusual thoughts, and self-defeating beliefs. Friends may say, "Get over it" about your jealousy toward your sister or your sadness over your girlfriend who texted "it's over" 3 months ago. If you are on medication for already-diagnosed depression, therapy is important to bring new ideas into your brain. If you are considering medication, start with talk therapy. Don't keep waiting for "it" to go away. What's at the bottom of your depression?

Depression sucks. It can make you feel hopeless, empty, and alone, even when things in your life are going well. Whether your depression is chemical, situational, or a combination of both, I can help you find ways to act against that depressed feeling and take steps towards feeling better. It is common for Depression to impact your sense of self-worth, and vice versa. Thus the most effective therapeutic treatment for Depression is to re-focus on the traits and values that define who you are as a person separate from that feeling; you can then use those strengths to fight the Depression and get back to feeling like your old self again. I specialize in treating Post-Partum Depression as well.

It can be hard to complete simple tasks, go to work or care for ourselves; being overloaded with thoughts has zapped your energy. But, there's hope for a way out through therapy.

My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.

Research has provided significant evidence that depression can be improved or even eliminated with a wide range of interventions. Although many believe that the “gold standard” treatment for depression is medication and talk therapy, I believe that the least intrusive intervention should be targeted first. Try talking to a therapist before getting medication prescribed. I will help you examine how you’re thinking about the problem may be actually supporting your depression, how your relationships may be contributing to your sense of sadness and frustration and how you can begin to make concrete behavioral modifications to begin the path to recovery. Recent studies show that medication is most eff....
